Lent Day 7

Jesus is Immanuel-God with us, an ever-present help in trouble. No matter what may happen, He is sufficient to provide whatever you need. Instead of imagining how you might respond to terrible things that could happen, draw your mind back to the present and take refuge in the Lord’s present. He is much like a mother hen, eager to cover you with His protective pinions. As you snuggle under His wings, you will not only find refuge; you will also discover a growing ability to trust in Him. It is in closeness to the Lord that you realize how trustworthy He is.

Remember that He is both your Rock and your Redeemer. Though He is impregnable in His vast strength. He became a vulnerable man so He could redeem you from your sins. The more you take refuge in Him, the more aware you become of His overflowing love. In Him you are utterly safe, for the Lord Jesus Christ is your Rock and your everlasting love.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
